Cloud platform is becoming emerging trend in IT infrastructure, service delivering and multi-layered resource sharing architecture which includes SaaS (Software as a service), PaaS (Platform as a service) and Iaas (Infrastructure as a service). With the increasing popularity of cloud computing, user store large amount of data in form of documents, text files, database etc. In Cloud, the large number of applications are running and storing logs on multiple servers and different log files. As today services are getting more decomposed, each layer in cloud stack generates different logs for network, applications, database etc. on different machines. The log provides the important piece of analytical data. At any point in time, cloud provider, owner or application developer need to understand the status of different components, monitor business process and end user documents in real time. Cloudsearch implements a Proof-of-Concept (POC) system to analyse the user documents, logs and folders in real time from different machine using Elasticsearch server which is open source distributed real time search and analytics engine. Furthermore, we have developed rivers (i.e. extension) for Elasticsearch server and extended its data searching capabilities for different operating system and software platform. Cloudsearch extends it capability by searching different OS in private cloud environment using SSH and SAMBA. Cloudsearch also allows users to search documents in their SharePoint server also. It provides simple user interface to add connectors or machine to index the data and allow user to search the data in real time. In this paper we describe the design and implementation of the Cloudsearch. Furthermore, we also describe how to extend Cloudsearch for different software and services.
